Try a pedometer: Pedometers are available in a range from simple and inexpensive to internet-based advanced programs. They can be a fun way to motivate yourself to take more steps, walk or jog more miles, etc. Also, if it is hard to get motivated to do a long exercise session, try breaking it up into several short bursts of 10-15 minutes during the day.

Self Love: It takes at least 21 days to form a habit. Self discipline is needed to get started and after that it becomes habit. Good to have support of friend or partner. Start slow and build up to goal. Know that this is a loving act to do for your self. Pick one you enjoy and have fun doing it. Chi gung can be done sitting initially. There is chair exercises.
